A strong attack on countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was launched by Mr. Diallo Telli, secretary-general of the Organisation of African Unity, when he arrived in Nigeria on Saturday (5 December). He said that Portugal was involved in the recent rain on Guinea and this meant that NATO was also involved as it supplies arms to Portugal.
Mr Telli was speaking at Lagos Airport on arrival for the O.A.U. Ministerial Council meeting which opens on Wednesday (9 December). The secretary general, who is a Guinean himself, said he hoped the meeting would take appropriate measures to prevent a recurrence of the Guinean invasion two weeks ago.
If Portugal was not discouraged, he did not know who would be the next victim. To get to the root of the problem, it was necessary to know the people who were giving military assistance to Portugal, "namely the NATO powers".
A five-member U.N. investigation team has charged that the invasion of Guinea was carried out by Portuguese forces "acting in conjunction with Guinean dissident elements from outside". Portugal has denied the charge.
Afro-Asian members of the United Nations will this week try to get the Security Council to condemn Portugal for its alleged part in the incident.
